* All the DigiDestined from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', except for Hikari and Takeru. Justified, since for most of the season the Digimon couldn't evolve through natural means (the protagonists used Digimentals to evolve). Enforced with Mimi and Jou, with the former haveing moved to New York and the latter going through high school entrance exams. [[spoiler:Though Mimi's moving away became an important plot device as it helped introducing the foreign DigiDestined.]]

* Team Rocket as of the ''Best Wishes'' iteration of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime. This was due to major CharacterDevelopment and the undoing of their comedic schpeiel as the GoldfishPoopGang into a more serious threat. Their once-an-episode appearances were downplayed in response to this.

This was due to major CharacterDevelopment and the undoing of their comedic schpeiel as the GoldfishPoopGang into a more serious threat. Their once-an-episode appearances were downplayed in response to this. They became more prominent again after returning to their comical forms, though still remain absent in occasional episodes to allow Ash's team to remain more proactive.

**This was the fate of Omega Ranger Sam from ''Series/PowerRangersSPD''. In a bid to save money, Sam was not given an out of suit actor, which made it difficult for him to properly interact with the other characters since he could only do so while in costume or as a CGI ball of light. So the writers wrote around him as best they could, having him turn up whenever the Sentai stock footage called for him and then having him disappear as soon as he wasn't needed.

* Princess Cornelia li Britannia was a major character throughout Season 1 of ''Anime/CodeGeass''. After being PutOnABus (sorta; her fate was left ambiguous for a while) at the end of the first season, she returned much later in R2. Aside from one memorable encounter in the middle of the season, she spends most of her time standing around and commenting on her brother Schneizel's moves.

* Pvt. Donut and Doc frequently flit in and out of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', in Donut's case because his voice actor is not a Rooster Teeth employee, just a friend of the creators, leading him to be written and out over the various seasons (he's a regular at the moment), while Doc just didn't appear for three seasons, took another season off, came back, and is currently (midway through Season 12) missing as of the end of Season 11.

* On ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' Weir and Ford did this before being dropped entirely Weir's actress could not return to do any more episodes (despite the writers having plans for a longer arc involving her), so they pulled (another) TheOtherDarrin on her (the character's 2nd time; disappointing the fans who hoped the 1st actress would be brought back) before having her PutOnABus. Ford just wasn't very interesting to them, so despite bringing him back several times he was eventually dropped.
